Jared Sullinger Says Wisconsin Fans Spit on Him Before and After Game

Wisconsin knocked off Ohio State on Saturday at the Kohl Center, handing the Buckeyes their first loss of the season. The Badgers fans rushed the floor after beating the top team in the country and apparently some of them were disrespectful. Buckeyes freshman Jared Sullinger wrote on his twitter after the game that he was spit on by fans. Here’s what he said, as pointed out by The Last Angry Fan:

BuckeyeNation if you ever decide to rush the court. Don’t ever spit on the opponents. Just a lil tip from me to you. … To be spit on is just nasty. On top of that in my Face. Before and after the game. Smh. I just kept walking. More fuel to the fire.”

SMH is short for “shaking my head,” but you could probably get the point that he was pretty disgusted by the actions of those fans. It’s pretty hard to dispute anything he wrote — why else would he say that stuff if it didn’t happen? If it did and no fight broke out, then I take my hat off to Sullinger for acting maturely. I can only imagine how radical the reaction would have been from other players if it happened to them. And that is truly surprising too — it doesn’t sound like Wisconsin fans at all.

Eagles’ Mike McGlynn Says LaRon Landry Spit in His Face Twice

Trash talking is one thing.  Spitting in a person’s face is another.  The fact that we’ve now had players claiming someone spit in their face during a game two weeks in a row is pretty disturbing if you ask me.  Last week, we showed you a video that all but proved Le’Ron McClain spit in Channing Crowder’s face during the Dolphins-Ravens game.  On Tuesday, Philly.com called our attention to another alleged spitting incident, this time involving Redskins safety LaRon Landry.

Philadelphia Eagles center Mike McGlynn says Landry spit in his face twice during Monday night’s game between the Eagles and Redskins — once during an extra point attempt and again at the end of the game as the Eagles were running time off the clock.  Unlike Crowder, McGlynn kept his composure and claims Philadelphia used the incident as motivation and an excuse to run the score up on the Skins.

He spit in my face, and that really fired us all up,” McGlynn said. “We were really looking to put the afterburners on them. It’s good to see. We came out and scored 60 points, almost . . . We want to play the game with all the respect in the world. When people come out and disrespect you like that . . . I think there just has to be more respect for the game than that. That’s just a terrible thing. We just looked at is as, “Hey, keep pouring it on them.”

Channing Crowder Says Le’Ron McClain Spit in His Face

Channing Crowder has been all over the headlines this week.  Earlier in the week, he made some comments about Derrick Mason being an old man and Mason responded by saying he’s been catching passes since Crowder was still wetting himself.  According to the Dolphins linebacker, the war went beyond words during the Miami-Baltimore game on Sunday, which the Ravens won 26-10.

Crowder told The Miami Herald after the game that Ravens running back Le’Ron McClain spit in his face during the third quarter.  Crowder then proceeded to call McClain a “bitch-ass punk” and a “ho.”  Meanwhile, Mason was in the Ravens locker room telling reporters that Crowder is a “bad player” who will be out of the league before Mason — who’s 36 — retires.

Things kept getting uglier, at least from a verbal standpoint.  The most memorable quotes about the situation came from Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby.

Man, if I’d have seen that, there would have been a damn brawl out there, straight up,” Dansby said. “We don’t play that. We some tough guys. But if you take a cowardly way like that, you need to be straightened. Hopefully, Roger Goodell will look at the film and he’ll do something about it. If he don’t, we’ll see him in the street and we’ll have to handle it like men.”

Them there are fightin’ words — literally.  I’d be willing to wager nothing happens “in the street,” but it would probably be wise for Goodell to take a look at the situation and try to do something to diffuse it.  Otherwise the refs will need to be armed with stun guns and riot shields in the unlikely event that the two teams should meet in the playoffs.
